Tucked along South Florida's fabled A1A in Lauderdale by the Sea, the Plunge Beach Hotel is a laid-back retreat for beach lovers in search of a fun and activity laden getaway. Catering to today's creative class, this oceanfront hideaway shuns corporate conformity in favor of a brilliantly offbeat approach to food, fun, music, and recreation. All in a world-class location that celebrates the timeless traditions of the Great American Beach Town.

We stopped at this beach resort for lunch last year and thought it would be nice to stay here. Well we certainly did enjoy it this year! This resort is well kept and very clean. Everyone was very welcoming and we had a wonderful stay to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary! Our favorite worker there was Gergo! We met Gergo for Happy Hour at the Octopus bar on our first night there and he is an excellent bartender! Gergo also bar tends at the pool bar and when he saw us stop in he called us by name! Part of our stay package is the use of the beach chairs and umbrella. Miguel was very friendly and accommodating and was always available to seat you anywhere you wanted on the beach. We enjoy staying at Lauderdale-by-the-Sea because we don’t have to rent a vehicle as everything we need is within walking distance. We just might make this our annual visit for October! Plunge will be our 1st choice whenever we plan to stay at Lauderdale-by-the-Sea! Hey Gergo can’t wait to see you again for the fabulous Happy Hour!! 🍻

Clean modern hip, this hotel is akin to boutique hotels in Santa Cruz CA. The lobby offers drinks -non alcoholic and the access to each part of the rooms was easy. The valet and the front desk could not have been more accommodating. I needed to leave abruptly for family emergency and their kindness will always be remembered-especially Valet at 1am
